Extramural grant proposal support

This program is designed to provide financial support to departments for the purpose of developing extramural grant proposals for submission to agencies outside of the University of Wisconsin System that address a significant university, college or departmental priority. Inter-departmental/unit collaborations are encouraged.


This program will provide one award of $5,000. Departments will have flexibility to use funding for faculty/staff stipends, student support, travel, supplies, and services any time during the fiscal year (July 2020 to June 2021). This grant carries the expectation that at least one completed proposal will be forwarded to the appropriate funding agency no later than the first review cycle following the completion of the Extramural Grant Development-Departments award.


Department chairs and unit directors are eligible to apply. One application may be submitted for an individual department or unit; collaborative proposals among departments and units will not count toward this limit.

Deadline for Application: March 15, 2023 to ORSP
